Listening to Audiobooks on Kindle Unlimited with Audible

Many books that are part of the Kindle Unlimited program are also part of the Audible/Amazon audiobook program. So all you need to do is sign up for a free trial and then download the Kindle app on your desired device.

To make it even easier, Amazon has a website where you can search for audiobooks based on your gender and age.

Once you’ve found your desired audiobooks, you can either listen to it right away or download it straight to your Kindle e-reader or one of your devices for later.

How to Use Whispersync for Voice to Listen to Your Kindle Unlimited Title

When you purchase a title in Kindle Unlimited, the Whispersync for Voice feature automatically downloads your selection to your device or you can choose to download it from the Cloud tab in the book’s information panel.

To use this feature, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Make sure that your Audible app is set up with your Amazon account.
  2. Start playing a Kindle Unlimited title in the Audible app and use the Audible controls to pause it.
  3. Use the Back and Next buttons on the Kindle app to start reading the title at the location where you paused it in the Audible app.
  4. If you like what you hear, keep listening. The Kindle app will sync your progress with the Audible app. If you prefer to hear the rest, just finish the title in the Audible app.
